Delivering aid in a conflict setting is complex and often frustrating. Oxfam has been delivering humanitarian aid in response to the conflict in Syria for a number of years, but there are still access restrictions that limit capabilities. Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria is particularly hard to reach, and there are a large number of displaced people returning to an area severely affected by the collapse of markets and public services. Due to a number of factors women are shouldering an increasing number of responsibilities, both within and outside the home. This case study examines how conducting a remote assessment that takes gender into consideration can benefit aid distribution.
